Value for money
You will get a friendly welcome when you enter this wonderfull oldstyle house. The room was tidy and clean. The bed was very good and my single room had an own bathroom with bath. Breakfast is served in a dining room and was tastefull and sufficient. Some areas need some paint and the stairs are a bit noisy as is the coffeemachine, but the location is great. You are just a view steps away from the citycenter and you have transportation just in front of the door. Value for money!

Basic , Good Location , Poor
First problem is finding the place we spent ages and couldn't get an answer on the phone .
A lot of stairs so jeep luggage to a minimum.
Balconies very dangerous, Not for children or elderly, unstable.
TV s didn't work very well.
Tea & Coffee facilities there but no Tea or Coffee in tin supplied.
Both myself and my colleague were heavily bitten , by what we do not know . ??

Apartment:- Basic long rectangle room bed(comfy queen size, ripped bottom sheet) at one end little clearance either side. Table chair & 2 seater lounge( very grubby) at other end. Sliding glass door to outside room with 6 seater dining table & siding glass door to enclose. Then covered patio with kitchen set in low cupboard.

No dishwasher as advertised not that we needed one, no coffee cups or coffee making equipment for coffee sent with breakfast. Kettle, toaster, hairdryer.

All in all apart from position,if physically challenged make sure you don't get this flat.

Disrespectful owners, very dis....
This B&B is far too expensive for what you get! Their website and photos are misleading. I strongly advise against this B&B for several reasons:
- I was astonished when the lady asked me at my arrival to pay immediately, or if not, to leave my ID-card or driving licence till payment (which they are not allowed to!). I refused. So be alert: don't deposit personal documents, nor accept to pay at your arrival. Take your time to see your room, to get your breakfast the next morning, and pay when you're leaving, as is custom in B&B's and hotels. didn't feel welcome from the very beginning. Earning money seemed to them a priority instead of pleasing the guests.
- At my arrival, the owner was very friendly (though only spoke a little bit of English), but as soon as we got into a price discussion the next morning, she changed all the way around and started to insult and even threaten me. This was very shocking. I've never seen this kind of treatment in any B&B or hotel. She had called the police the day before because of another price discussion; I'm sure she would have done the same in my case. But I had an appointment in Gent, and couldn't continue discussing. So, verify your reservation and print it. It's not the first time guests have a price discussion in this B&B.
- The room and breakfast were very poor, no real investment to please the guests. Constant noise during the night, even though my room was not on the street side.

Filthy, smelly and just groce.
I booked this hotel foor 22 people. We had the 5 studios. they never told me one of them was in another building across the street.
We had an agreement that we will arrive at 11 o'clock in the morning.No one was there. There we stood with our luggage in the centre of Gent. I called him and we had to wait for like 20 minutes.
The rooms were not ready yet. I talked to the manager we would leave our luggage and come back at 4 in the afternoon,. When we arrived we got the keys but the rooms still were not cleaned and i can assure you 'THEY WERE FILTHY'.
Lots of people didn't want to stay there and went looking for other accomodation. Because it was a long weekend there was no place to go. So we stayed.
Some of our rooms didn't have breakfast, next to my bed I found a cup of pee. And the rooms smelled like vomit.
